re: the Anna Sloan conundrum

She did have a bad game in the 3v4 page, and is the target of more vitriol on this site than any other curler, except maybe John Shuster. Her numbers are skewed down with that picked rock that got hogged too. The usually reliable Vicki Adams had even worse numbers in the game though, which never helps a third.

Truth is her ties to Muirhead run deep. Not only have she and Eve been playing together for ages, but her boyfriend is in the family too. As un-PC as this statement may be, the Glenn that has the most potential impact on this decision isn't Howard... the only thing I see that would get her off the team is if Glen Muirhead gets her pregnant.

That said the best Scottish third isn't playing for Scotland because her dad pulled an 'Alison Kreviazuk' and moved to Sweden and got married. Despite today's effort Sarah McManus has had an outstanding season and would look as good in the blue and white as she does in the blue and yellow.



Sara McManus is certainly a better quality 3rd than Terrible Anna but I don't think she'd be the complete answer for Muirhead. McManus doesn't have the field generalship or ice leadership of someone like Emma Miskew - but then we're comparing her to the preeminent 3rd in the game. Sara was totally unable from saving her skip from drowning in poor decisions and bad outcomes.

I say give Lauren Gray a bit more training to stabilize her delivery and test her next year at 3rd. Of course, making changes at the back end of an Olympic cycle is troublesome so perhaps they'll just go status quo w/ Sloan.

Well done Anna Sid.

Welcome to Mean Girl City!

agree with your comment M.L. as curling goes some players show little emotion when their team is up or down on the score board , in this case Anna Sidorova had a reason to smile during her game against Sweden, SHE KNOWS that it won't be a single bronze medal this time around more like a silver or even a gold medal will be up for grabs

Anna now has a silver locked up - SHE'S GOING FOR GOLD . . .

Essentially you have to make 70 of 80 shots or more - to topple a monster like Homan - that's nearly 88% - and you must make between 2 and 4 game saving or game-winning shots to boot!

Sweden had better percentages all week than the Russians, but in an elimination game, it all fell apart - particularly after the mid-game break!

Homan wins more than anyone else because of a hi-octane mixture of high percentages and big game shots.

It will crush Rachel if Anna manages to put her down. Another silver to add to her current crop of 1 silver, 1 bronze.

It will also sting for Sidorova - not quite as much - as she'd have a silver to add to her collection of 3 bronze!

I think the relationship between Eve and Anna is akin to Jones and Officer, Hard to get rid of an old friend even if it costs games.
